Our culture has divided women from their bodies and their spirituality.

In 2010 EMA -Erotic Movement Arts ® was born to unite them.

Practicing EMA is a practice of bringing compassion to every part of yourself - body, mind and heart.

EMA integrates sensual female-centered Yoga, Qi Gong, Meditation and Sacred Dance.

MORE on THE ema experience

Erotic Movement Arts® is a multi-sensory, pleasure based, movement experience for activating the female sensual body.  

There are many ways to begin your love affair with your sacred body.

Our unconscious sexual and emotional stories are trapped in our bodies and with movement being our first language, it can be a direct pathway to know our deeper selves.  Our bodies can express so purely what are minds often cannot.   

It’s also a smart embodiment practice (not a hard fitness class) that really moves energy and tones the muscles to help reclaim your body as your own.

The classes are designed to bring joy to the flesh and ignite women's erotic power through movements adapted from Yoga, Pilates, Modern Dance and energy cultivation practices like Qi Gong and Tantric Dance.

Every class, you will let go of tension through self myofascial release techniques adapted from Yoga Tune Up® , this will ease you into connecting to your subtle (energy) body as well as your feeling body, this is where your creativity and pleasure lives!

Rie Katagiri, the founder of EMA is a dancer, somatic bodyworker, holistic wellness coach, yoga + meditation, female-empowering pole and erotic dance instructor for the last 18 years with clients in every intense industry from Hollywood to Silicon Valley.
